Speculation for the rest of 2017 in TSTO

As this event comes to a much-needed and desired end, my Simpsons senses are tingling with the need to speculate and rewatch Simpsons episodes in the fun of planning of what COULD be coming next. With The Simpsons Tapped Out we are 99% sure that we will get specific holiday themed updates like Halloween and Christmas so with Halloween already near the end, I’m pretty sure that we can safely predict how the rest of 2017 will go for TSTO. So buckle down for a quick rundown of some TSTO teasers and what I think is going to end 2017 …

Ranking EVERY Simpsons Treehouse of Horror segment!

From the iconic, trend-setter “Treehouse of Horror” episode of The Simpsons in 1990, The Simpsons have produced these Halloween Three-Parters every season since and they aren’t showing a sign of stopping. In this annual tradition we see the Springfield characters, that we’ve grown to love, take part in non-canon stories to scare, amuse and to reference popular Horror and Non-Horror movies. Over the 28 years we’ve seen 84 segments (including the segments of this year) so whilst there is a gold-mine of hilarious, iconic and chilling segments there are also the segments that are just randomly annoying or just passable so over October I decided to rewatch all of the Treehouse of Horror episodes to familiarize myself with each one and to give a fun ranking of ALL 84 segments.

There are so many factors to take into consideration when I ranked these segments and because of the vast amount of segments there are surely going to be segments that are interchangeable and may change as time goes by so doesn’t quote me on this ranking. This post is my opinion and I may or may not have opinions different to yours or to other places so please just respect that and enjoy …

TSTO THOH 2017 – Item Calendar [SPOILERS!]

Treehouse of Horror 2017 seems to be the event that is receiving a range of opinions for the hate, the mediocre and the love and for me personally I’m enjoying the overall theme of the event, looking forward to building a Hogwarts style area, can see some super fun content for me but I can see the drag and the mediocrity for people that aren’t Pot(ter)heads like me.

But whether you love or you hate this Marmite event, there is content coming up and I’m sure there’s something for everyone and I definitly think that EA have done an good job at adding some classic items for some not into the Magical tone and I think people need to put in perspective how many years EA have done these events and the struggle EA would have had with making everyone happy with not that much classic THOH content left.

Due to the popularity of the Item Calendars – to me and to my beloved readers – It thought people would appreciate a Calendar to show the upcoming content in the game so – quite obviously – there are going to be SPOILERS so please DON’T read ahead if you’d rather not read that kind of content.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED …

J Stewart Burns on his workings in TSTO and The Simpsons

Hello my beautiful Tappers and welcome to an interview that is extremely late. Back in late May/early June, I interviewed Michael Price – which was really fun – and I asked him if there were any Simpsons writers that also worked on The Simpsons Tapped Out. He told me about J Stewart Burns who writes for The Simpsons and also helps over at Tapped Out. I soon had his email and was very excited to get a response quickly – especially since he started his reply by saying his wife was about to go into labour! Really don’t know why I didn’t post this interview nearer that time but found this post in my drafts recently …

So I am extremely grateful that J Stewart Burns got back so I hope you enjoy his answers …

Springfield Showcase: Announcement

Hello Tappers,
I would like to quickly apologize for the brief absence from the blog – been away this summer a few times and have really procrastinated writing BUT have loads of really cool ideas so keep your eyes peeled. Anyways …

TSTO is a one of a kind apps where I feel design is 100% user friendly and it truly lets you go free with your creative ideas. The reason I’m not a fan of other “city building” games like the Family Guy game (which has other major flaws in my opinion!), Sims CityBuilder and other building apps is because of the lack of freedom they give you with the design. They give you loads of decoration and buildings and the only “freedom” is where you place them. So yes, you can create some nice looking areas but with TSTO you can use hedges to create mountains, fences to create custom walls, bushes to spell words and there is SO much space for the player to take the decorations that they’ve been given and turn it into some bigger and impressive.

That’s why I wanted to create a space for players to humbly show-off areas of their towns which they are proud of. If you are a TSTO neighbor of mine then you know that my town is an absolute mess that I’ve barely worked on so seeing loads of creations will hopefully inspire me to stop procrastinating and JUST DO IT! So how does this “Showcase” work?…

Homerpalooza Item Calendar [SPOILERS!]

Hello Musical Tappers and welcome to a post that I created to be of guidance for those tappers looking ahead, planning those donut farms and scouting out which items to buy. This Homerpalooza event is chockablock of AMAZING items, in my opinion, so I know my donut bank is going to be low by the end of this festival.

I’m more of a visual reader so I know when looking for spoilers I would have appreciated a visual version of dates and what items were going to hit on each day so read on for a visual calendar of the items to come in this Musical Extravaganza …

THIS POST CONTAINS HEAVY SPOILERS ABOUT THE ITEMS TO COME SO PLEASE DON’T CONTINUE READING IF YOU WOULD RATHER AVOID SPOILERS 😀

Simpsons Analyzer talks The Simpsons and it’s “decline”

Hiya Everybody!… The other week I read an article about a man who had watched every Simpsons episode and mapped out his ratings onto a graph along with some labels to explain. Sol Harris, the man behind the study, watched every episode, gave it a rating out of 10,  worked out the rating average for each season and plotted this on a graph …

I was fascinated by this study so asked Sol, via Twitter, if I could send him questions and he happily agreed. Reading his answers definitely made me think about my opinion on the Simpsons, which I may do a post about, so here are the questions and answers …

TSTO – Some “Singing” Speculation

If you came here to listen to me sing this entire post from the title then get ready to be disappointed 😂

We are mid summer and last day of this Pride Day mini-event so that can only mean one thing … EA give us a two month break to let us enjoy our personal holidays? HAHAHAHAHA …

No. EA have definitely gotten into this routine of update after update and if I’m being honest … I like it. Just as long as they don’t “run out of ideas” because they’re going at an unsustainable rate. So with something lurking around the deep dark corners of the EA servers and from the clues that they’ve given, I’m getting very excited! 😊

Some enjoy some speculation and ideas of what’s to come in the next Tapped Out update …
